If the outlet is properly grounded and connected and the battery charger is properly connected I would look at the Power Supply being bad unless you've had damage to the plug.

I can leave it plugged in for 24 hours and not have a full charge. Is this the batteries or the on board charger


There are a few things to consider with this type of problem.

How old are the batteries. When did you last have them tested. Is the charger output ok on load (test with an amp clamp type meter). is the charger the correct one for these batteries, small output chargers take longer to charge big batteries. Are all connection tight on batteries and anything to do with the charging circuit. Plug and socket type connection do fail on poor connections. Check voltage on batteries when on charge and off charge to see if the charger voltage is getting through to the batteries.

Weak battery, I would like to connect a battery charger to it. How do I do this with out taking the seat off? Or is that possible?


There is another way but it may not be any easier. You can connect the positive clamp of your battery charger to the connection where the large battery cable coming from the battery connects to the starter. Connect the negative clamp to a good frame ground.

The best method of maintaining your battery is to use one of the "smart chargers" on your battery. A "Battery Tender" or "Yuasa" smart charger comes with a pigtail that you connect to your battery. Tuck the pigtail in somewhere that it can't be seen when you ride and when you get back home, plug the charger to the pigtail. Your battery will stay fully charge without be boiled dry like the big chargers will do . It will increase the life of your battery as well.

Good Luck

When i plug the charger in the first time it is working but when the charger is unplug the laptop is not working.


Hi Tim, As per my understanding you are experiencing issues with the laptop not working without a charger being plugged in.In this regards what I would suggest you do is see if the battery charges with the charger plugged in and in case the battery does get charged see if you are able to power on the laptop with just the battery connected and no charger plugged in.If you are able to get the laptop to turn on only with the charger connected and unable to power on with just the battery then it would be an issue with the battery not getting charge.So before you replace the battery please unplug all external devices from the laptop including the charger and the battery and without the charger or battery connected to the laptop please press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds after which please insert the battery into the laptop and see if you are able to turn on the laptop.This step is performed so that we could drain out unwanted static electric charges from the laptop.In case this step does not work please do consider replacing the battery since it would be an issue with the battery not getting charged. Best wishes for your effort.

My "01" 1500 intruder wentr completly dead, no


Well you may need to look at the charger that it stays on. The battery is'nt made to be charged all the time and it may have ruiened the battery. The charger if not plugged in or the place it's plugged inton whent dead the charger it's self will run the battery down. ( a battery tender might not, it's different than a charger) I would get a test light ( a tool that has a light bulb in the handle an ice pick on the end and on the other end a lenght of wire and a clip on the end to connect to ground). use the light to see where the power is getting to. Most of the time on a vehical thats sitting the battery cable connections at the battery are the troble. Disconnect and reconnect them scraping them off the get them clean, and reconnect them tightly. As the battery has been on charge for a long time it may be bad and have to be changed.

Hello, i have a invacare wheelchair that has 2 12v sealed batteries, wired in series at 24v. I wanted to find out the charge plug has 3 prongs, which should be -. ground, . over vice versa, how come there...


Salty The charger detects the batteries when it is plugged into the charger port. With the older chargers you could measure the output of the charger by measuring across the two outter pins. With the newer chargers there is no output until the charger is plugged into the charger port. Now on the M51 you should have an on-board charger and the cord plugs into the back of the chair into a three pronged plug. Now if you plug the on-board charger into the wall socket and look at the rear of the chair low to the ground you should be able to see a red and yellow light (red and green when fully charged). With this charger plugged in you can take a digital voltmeter set it on 200 v dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes in the charger port under the front of the joystick you should read 27-30 volts when charging and 24-27 volts fully charged and the charger unplugged. Hope this helps you

I have a #20 charger inverter on my sailboat. It has worked fine for several years. This winter, I replaced the battery bank with 4 Trojan T-105. Batteries are fully charged, new battery wiring and...


Without more information, it could be a number of things. For starters, you might try disconnecting the ground wire to see if that makes any difference. The Xantrex Owner's/Installation Manual says specifically not to connect the inverter's negative *battery cable* to the vessel ground, but if the unit's housing and the negative cable share a common ground somewhere inside the unit, that would be the same thing. The T-105s are great batteries, but since they are 6V, make sure you rewired them correctly, i.e. a pair in series (12V) wired in parallel with the other pair for 450 AH total. Recheck all your battery connections and make sure you didn't blow the inline battery fuse in case you inadvertently made a momentary wrong connection during the new battery installation.

My samsung phone has been fully charged. I try to turn it on, it says "initializing," then shuts down. When unplugged, it won't turn on at all. When plugged in, it shuts down, then blinks to the charging...


Are you sure it was fully charged before? Could you see the full battery bars?

It sounds like your AC adapter (the charger) has likely gone bad. The phone battery probably wore down, and when you plugged it into the charger, the charger couldn't charge it, so the battery remained dead.

Since the battery is not charged, you can't turn the phone on at all when it's not connected to the charger. And when you do connect it to the charger and turn it on, you get the intermittent charging because something inside the adapter has a faulty connection -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

You can easily verify if the charger is the problem by getting a new charger (they're not too expensive) and seeing if the phone will work and/or charge with the new charger.

If the new charger doesn't fix the problem, post again here and we'll go from there, but I think the new charger will take care of it.

Hope that helps!

Car wont start, just a clicking noise from the engine, insurtument clocks go all the way round before resting back at zero


If you are getting a rapid clicking noise, that means the battery is dead or you have a poor connection between the battery and starter. It could also be a poor connection on the negative or ground side of the battery or ground cable. Try jump starting it or put a battery charger on it for a half hour or so and try it again. If you get it going you should have the charging system and battery checked ASAP (as soon as posible). If you don't need to go anywhere leave the charger on the battery over night, set the charger on a slow charge rate less than 15 amps.

230 chauffeur doesn't charge. Batteries new and


hi, ok you mentioned nothing about the charger, is it built in ? or stand alone charger, can you try another charger ??

If you have a Electrical meter tester check that the charging socket pins do actually connect to the batteries if not check the charging socket,

of the three charging pins two are the positive & negative so should show 24 volts the odd one out the one in the middle just below the other two is the inhibit , that is normally grounded otherwords negative.

Sound like a loose connection so please check all connections if you are sure the charger is ok.
